CVSS 5.3 (Medium)
Publicly Published November 14, 2023

Researcher Abdi Pranata


The Events Addon for Elementor plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized modification of data due to missing capability checks on the naevents_bw_settings_save_func(), naevents_bw_toggle_submit_func(), naevents_pro_settings_save_func(), naevents_pro_toggle_submit_func() and naevents_uw_settings_save_func() functions all hooked via nopriv AJAX actions in all versions up to, and including, 2.1.2. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to modify the plugin's settings.
